saidaSaida Swaleh, an award winning journalist who learned much of her trade while working with Internews in Kenya, has been part of the Kenya Television Network (KTN) team since 2011.

Swaleh is best known for her soft spot for human interest stories and features. This year she won the Gender Reporting Award with her colleague Angel Katusia. Dubbed “Flesh of My Flesh,” the winning story was about the sex trade and included interviews with women who were sex workers and drug dealers in Mombasa, Malindi, Ukunda and Nairobi.

But away from her decorated media career, Swaleh is a loving wife to Abdul Jaleel Komen. The two, married since 2013, are also blessed with an adorable daughter.
